Maria Anice Mureb Sallum


Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Faculdade de Saúde Pública (FSP)  (Institutional affiliation from the last research proposal)
Birthplace: Brazil

She is a professor in Epidemiology, Ecology in Public Health, and Biology, Ecology and Taxonomy of Culicidae in the School of Public Health at the University of São Paulo, Brazil. She studied at the University of Sao Paulo and obtained her PhD degree in 1994 based on research on the systematics of the Spissipes Section of Culex (Melanoconion) (Culicidae). She continued her education in the United States, with post-doctoral studies in molecular phylogeny of Anophelinae mosquitoes at the Natural Museum of Natural History at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC, and a one-year position as a Senior Visiting Researcher at The Walter Reed Biosystematics Unit, Suitland, MD. Her work there involved the revision of species of the Leucosphyrus Group of Anopheles, subgenus Cellia, with a description of six new species in collaboration with EL Peyton and Rick Wilkerson. Upon her return, she coordinated several projects in biology and systematics of Culicidae with an emphasis on Anophelinae. Later, she expanded her focus on field research to include malaria across the Amazon River basin, with a special focus on ecology, the impact of environmental change on mosquito assemblages and increased risk of acquiring Plasmodium infection. She has a broad background in biology, ecology, and public health, with specific training and expertise in key research areas for vector-borne diseases. During her university career, she has built strong collaborations with other institutions and has an extensive network of national and international collaborators. In 2008, she was awarded with John Belkin Award by the American Mosquito Control Association for her meritorious contribution to biology and/or systematics of Culicidae. In 2022 and 2023, she was included in the updated list of the World's Top 2 Scientists published by Stanford University.ResearcherID: B-8537-2012Scopus Author ID: 7004350987 (Source: Lattes Curriculum)
